In the 19th century wild game was a way of life.  More than half the country hunted or fished to help supplement their diet. Wild game was common fare in restaurants. It’s no wonder that hunting and fishing ran a close second to horse racing in the world of cigar boxes and labels. After all, their market was male and images were chosen to reflect what men knew and liked.
